    Travel to Ponferrada

    Thank you VN. Yes the Hospitalero volunteering will be amazing!! I also did try the Loco2 site but that seemed to be beyond my school grade level as well :) Guess I was born to be a bus rider..... :)

    Travel to Ponferrada

    Hello Brambles!! Well, you give great advice! In fact that is exactly what I did. I gave up on Renfe and went to Alsa and booked a bus for wife and I. It was fairly simple once I called my credit card company and explained to them that it was ME that was trying to buy a bus ticket in Spain. :)...

    Travel from Santiago to Madrid

    We have taken both the bus and train from SDC to MAD on our return back home. We enjoyed both rides and both were very different in their own little ways. If you get the opportunity and subsequent Camino's, try each transportation option. Each carries it's own experiences-some good, some bad...

    Backpack as Checked baggage

    Hello Deb.Doug. Once we arrived at our Spainish destination, the old Thrifty Suitcases were donated to the people of Spain. There was always someone that wanted them. Once we arrived in SDC we purchased new ones to put our packs in for the trip back home. We use the new ones in our other...

    Backpack as Checked baggage

    Three Caminos and each time I got a cheap used suitcase at the local thrift store and put my pack (and poles) in it and check it at the airport. My wife did the same thing in a separate suitcase.
